Read in December, 2008

This book is very underwhelming, and very difficult to get engaged in. The cover is indeed misleading, as many other reviews have noted, and the stories are much more mundane than his other books.
The author states that this book is a collection of New Yorker stories that have been "fleshed out", and in reality they probably could have been published in original form and made for a much more readable book. The pieces become overly long and repetitive, and in the end simply boring.
That's really the summation of this book: boring. Sorry, but I was really disappointed.
